Romney lost because the Santa Claus Communist Party beat him (formerly the Progressive party) ((formerly before that the democratic party))

The socialist-indoctrinated youth have come of age, in critical mass. Unless that changes, bye-bye America. Oh wait.. It’s already bye-bye America. Then there’s that issue of voter fraud; A favorite of the unions who run the polling places in the swing states.. I think that put 0bama over the top, actually.

With Romney not contaminating the party, republicans may be able to recover from his dark influence on the party.

Massachusetts liberals should never have taken over the GOP.

Says there are more democrats than republicans. There ALWAYS has been among adults or registered voters. Obama got a huge minority turnout and turned them into “likely voters”.

Note he dismisses getting more of the white vote. God forbid we should openly appeal to a group that is 72% of the electorate.

The hispanic thing is a fantasy, a trick to make 30 millin more democrats from illegals.

The real problem is a near 100% black vote for democrats. Note the author assumes you can’t crack the black vote, or get more of the white vote.

You can. And you can get hispanic votes without giving in on illegals. A non Obama will not get 100% of blacks or the high black turnout. A Rubio or Cruz (sp?) may get more minority votes. Hang in there.

Let’s also remember what’s good for America.

Mr Etch-a-Sketch lost because he could not energize his own base, much less revive Reagan’s coalition of conservatives, evangelicals, independents and blue collar democrats. If the GOP follows moderate/liberal advice and tilts further left, they’ll simply lose more elections.

There is no such thing as a moderate coalition. Never has been, never will be.

This country was founded to secure and defend God’s blessings of life and liberty to ourselves and our posterity. Nothing less will suffice.

HOLD THE LINE!!

Hard to believe we’ve just given up on the black vote. There won’t be a dark complexion candidate running each time for the dems and there are certainly a rising number of middle class and upper class blacks. Why aren’t we going after these folks, just to peel off a few percent at least.

having covered this earlier today it's still fresh in my mind ~ just have your state mail out voter registration cards EARLY ~ that's so people will know they are registered to vote so there're no surprises on election day.

Plus, make sure they are endorsed DO NOT FORWARD.

That way any of them sent to an old address no longer used by the registered voter can be returned to the registrar's office for correction of the voter registration records.

That little trick probably removed MILLIONS from the voting rolls this year ~ maybe as many as 7 million Democrats and upwards of 2 to 3 million Republicans!

The huge problem we face is that Liberals assiduously demonize Republicans, while Republicans avoid this type of behavior. Demonization is a highly effective means of poisoning (ignorant) moderates against an opposition. If these poorly informed individuals constantly hear one side saying bad things about the other, but nothing similar going back the other way, it affects how they perceive the battle.

Republicans need to start attacking Liberals as cowardly, disloyal, ignorant, naïve, etc, now, and carry it through for four years, or they will be hopeless in 2016.

All fo these groups can be harnessed through shame, if the Republicans would have the balls to put up a united front, and be impolite with the idiot Libs who are constantly hammering them.

We can not wait for 2014 and 2016 to regroup and figure out new strategies. By then it will be too late. The Marxist/Muslim usurper will have completed his planned distruction of America.

That’s what people fail to understand.

Col Allen West; “I don’t want to see America become like Zimbabwe where people don’t trust their electoral process. If we cannot trust the integrity of the voting system then we are no longer a free republic.

Col West has opened the door.
It’s now up to We The People.

Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.

.
Polls indicated that Romney was going to win the election. The economy is close to Great Depression era conditions, and unemployment is almost as high as when Obama entered office. Economic conditions became so dire after Obama took office it prompted the rise of an entire new movement, the Tea Party.
Presidents rarely win reelection when the economy is in the tank.
So how did Romney lose a race that numerous reputable polls and pundits predicted would be an easy win, based on historical patterns?
Massive voter fraud.

There are massive reports of criminal activity
(not mischief, not shenanigans, as many term the fraud- but CRIMINAL ACTIVITY) going on all over the U.S during the presidential election.
Reports of machines changing votes from Romney to Obama, eyewitness reports of Republican poll watchers who observed busloads of non-English speaking Somalians in Ohio being instructed to vote Obama- the list is endless.

http://www.ObamaVoterFraud.com/

Romney lost because of this, not any other reason.
Nobody could have won against the fraud planned and perpetrated by the Obama Machine.

The evidence is overwhelming!

“...Mitt Romney had a 50-50 chance of winning the presidency. It didn’t turn out that way. “

That’s nonsensical.

To me, the Gop-e picked nominee, had already shown a weakness by going against the party’s own platform. He was pro choice, The policy of Don't ask, Don't tell; Mr. Romney wanted that left as it was standing for our military. He even said before the election that he was very proud of his governorship passing the gay-marriage bill and the health care bill for Massachusetts. Those were not party platform issues. All troubling before the primary was out of the gate, in my view.

Of course, everyone has their own thoughts of what happened. The republican elites have turned their backs on the traditional values and only now fight for causes they see in which there would be either no political damage or less political damage for them. America has been spiraling since Bill Clinton. Clinton’s Sec. Elders passing out condoms in our schools. Judges removing God from our books. Illegals given free care/food stamps/free education from he US worker. On an on.. When Newt coined Obama as the food stamp president, more people started to get it. Romney, dropped that message. Almost like, he was being pulled 2 different ways. I guess he was, when you think about it since his heart was really not into conservatism.

Well, sure. Nobody's ever going to get 95 or 96 percent of the Black vote like Obama did in 2008. Obama's own share was down to 93 percent or so this year, and that will go down for other Democrats in later elections. But probably the Democrat share of the African-American vote will be well over 80 percent for the forseeable future.

FWIW, I found this on foxnews.com: "In 2008, black women had the highest turnout rate, 69 percent, of all groups." If that's a fact, why didn't we know that and make our predictions on that basis? If Black turnout was much higher than expected last time, why assume it would be much lower this time?

LBJ got 97% of the black vote. JFK had gotten only 75%.

Obama equalled LBJ"s record in 2008, but this year he only got 93% ~ which tells us that 7% of the black vote ~ not just black voters ~ went somewhere else.

Notice the Democrats are not crowing about getting out record numbers of black voters ~ and they didn't. The fewer who show up the lower the percentage who vote for Democrats. Once we get the out of date voter registration files corrected, the Democrat share of the remaining black vote is probably going to be back down there at JFK's level ~ that is, 75% tops!

Somebody who wants can come up with a quadratic equation that gives us an indication of what percent of the black vote is fraudulent ~ should be fairly simple ~ the fewer black people claimed to have voted in a given election, the lower the percentage of those votes that show up in the Democrat column. We control the number of black people who are registered by keeping registration files up to date ~ we do that by sending out voter registration cards to the last known address of the voter ~ those that are returned result in at least one theoretically black Democrat voter no longer being registered, and that turns into.......

BTW, you have to send those cards to everybody to win this game ~ you can't just target census blocks where the latest census tells you there are black voters. Do it for everybody ~

Your man just led us to ruin in a sure thing election and the party is broken because of him, you need to obsess less for Romney and join us in excising him and his negative influence from the party.

You and yours have done enough damage, now we need to rework the party image away from the liberal gaffe machine from Massachusetts.
